Mahalakshmi Yantra is a sacred geometry symbolizing Goddess Lakshmi, and it carries her divine vibrations. Sri Lakshmi Yantra is worshipped for attracting prosperity and abundance and for the fulfillment of material desires.
Goddess Mahalakshmi symbolizes wealth, the provider of good fortune, abundance, and prosperity. The Sanskrit word Lakshya means aim or purpose, which directs us toward Mahalakshmi. Therefore, Lakshami means to drive yourself towards a goal.
Mahalakshmi is not only a companion of Lord Vishnu' but also is his energy. Lord Vishnu is the Supreme Narayan, and Mahalaxmi is endowed with six divine strengths.
When Lord Vishnu chose to incarnate on earth as an avatar Rama accompanied him as Sita. When Lord Vishnu incarnated as Krishna, Lakshmi was the Rukmini.
Mahalakshmi is always seen seated on a lotus. Her four hands denote the four goals of human life – dharma, artha, kama and moksha.
In popular literature, Lakshmi personifies wealth, riches, beauty, happiness, grace, charm, and splendor.
While the universe was being created, Lakshmi sprang up with the treasures from the 'Samudra Manthan' churned by gods and demons. Samudra Manthan is seen as the churning of the ocean. She carried a lotus in her hand and is therefore called Padma Lakshmi.
According to the Saubhagya Lakshmi Upanishad, Mahalakshmi is the divine giver of boons. She is the bestower of wealth, has a golden form, and is adorned with a garland of gold. She has a golden sheen and dwells within a lotus symbolizing purity.
